The flavorful Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burrito filling joined with simple liquid egg whites come together perfectly for a high protein, low calorie, gluten-free plate of deliciousness. This Sweet Potato Black Bean Egg White Omelet is the ultimate clean-eating Fall breakfast meal!
Some of the best recipes are born by just cleaning out the fridge! Yesterday, morning, I rifled through a fridge full of leftovers trying to decide if my morning meal would be sweet or savory. I was craving a savory high-protein meal that would fuel me through Body Pump and then a grocery haul. Egg whites combined with my favorite sweet potato burrito filling– why not?!
Wow- what a tasty satisfying power meal! I’ve got about a bajillion other recipes to share, but I just had to get this post up. I want you guys to enjoy this incredible sweet potato omelet asap. Plus, the burrito filling is a great meal prep choice. Brad likes mixing it with cooked ground bison for a quick taco and I enjoy it as a salad topping.
Don’t worry about making your omelet perfect- just because the omelet isn’t pretty and perfectly rolled doesn’t mean it’s not incredibly wonderful to eat. So simple, too- I poured 1 cup liquid egg whites into a medium non-stick skillet and evenly dropped about 1/2 cup (maybe a little more) spoonfuls of the sweet potato black bean mixture over the egg whites. I went about my business for about 5-10 minutes, letting the egg whites bubble and set. Once fully cooked on one side, I carefully rolled the omelet to the other side for about 1 minute. Voilà!
This Fall-flavored omelet is so yummy you don’t even need toppings, but avocado makes everything better. Every meal needs a healthy fat! Salsa would also be a great topping addition- feel free to get creative.
